One of our female black rhinos, Kamuchacha, has just given birth to her second calf!
As many of you know, most of our rhino are now free-roaming around the conservancy. Kamchacha is not allowing us a close up of her new baby yet, but any sighting is a good sighting and this glimpse was caught on video early this morning. Our newest addition has been named “Khanya” meaning 'Light' in Ndebele by ProFeeds Zimbabwe, whose continual support is invaluable and so deeply appreciated by Imire.
Thank you also to our incredible scouts - every rhino birth is testament to your dedication and passion. With fewer than 600 black rhino remaining in Zimbabwe, every new birth is truly a victory for the conservation efforts in this country.
Stay tuned for updates on our Facebook and Instagram pages.
